"Carbon-Based Anatomy" as written by and Sean Reinert Paul Masvidal....
Homo sapiens
And your carbon-based anatomy
The child you're looking for
Is starved and lost, a memory

Drop the knife
Leave your arms behind
Just for a moment
Calm the mind
The longing never ends
Not while you're human

What if you could hold
Your mother's heart
inside your hands
Would you seek blood again
Would you find the karmic thread

Drop the knife
Leave your arms behind
Just for a moment
Calm the mind
The longing never ends
Not while you're human

Stop the clock
Drop the storyline
Just for a moment
Stop the clock
The longing never ends
Not while you're human

    Lyric Correction1. "Is 'starved' and lost" not starving
    2. "''Drop' the storyline" not destroy

    Awesome song. Awesome band.
